Kordell Stewart didn’t earn the nickname “Slash” because he could play guitar for a legendary rock band. Rather, it was because Stewart became the most versatile offensive threat the NFL had ever seen in the 1990’s, playing at least four different positions — quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and kick returner — for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2001, as the starting quarterback, Stewart led the Steelers to a 13–3 regular-season record, en route to an AFC Championship game appearance (which they lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion New England Patriots).
Since retiring, Stewart has tried his hand at working in the media, making appearances on ESPN’s College Football Live, NFL Live, and Mike and Mike In the Morning. He also had a stint as a co-host on an Atlanta radio sports talk show.
